    Hi All,

    Just a quick one, i dunno how many people know his but did u know that we have a lil speed limit beeper? (sure it probably has a fancy name)

    Basically if u hit the lil needle (the one u use to change ur clock) push it inward once you have set your speed say 40mph for example everytime u go over 40mph it beeps and comes up with mph in the DIS. Its pretty cool.

    Handy for those average speed things on the motorway set it at 50mph and relax. Also in 30 zones etc if there are a **** load of cameras about. u just push it in and hold it to turn it off again.

    anyway maybe im slow on the uptake and everyone knows but i think its cool either way. :cool:

    Cheers.

    my favourite one is if you hold down lock on you keyfob, your windows wind up. hold down unlock and they open...

    took me a few weeks to find the draws in the seats too! :)

    Does anyone know what the highest speed you can set on this, as I was testing the car out on a private road (yeah right) when i hit over 110mph i heard a loud bleep and a symbol on dis came up, but as my dis has pixels missing couldnt make out what symbol was.

    Sorted just had read on other forum and mine after pressing button with ignition off mine was set at 100mph and it apparently warns you if you are over by 6mph. Have turned mine off will test tommorow on way to work, damn I mean on my mates private road.

    There are actually two speed limit things you can use. The temp one that be changed as mentioned and another that can be programmed as a hard coded speed. The mph (2) shows up for the hard coded one and appears at the coded speed +10%. If it comes on at 110mph it's been set to 100mph if you see what I mean. Quite handy that one.

    I also like the tiredness flashing. If you ignore it and power through it appears another 2 hours later with an incremented counter so flashes 04:00 at you :)

    Did you know that if you have vcds you can program the alarm to give a chirp when it arms and get all the locks to lock when you drive off, not opening until you take the key out of the ignition. I think this is a smart little feature which doesn't seem to be activated on most Audi's. I programmed mine up as soon as I got it.

    I'll second that, the little sunvisor although at first seems pointless is a nice touch.

    You won't find any drawers under the S3 recaro seats! This is one thing I miss from my old 1998 A3 1.8T Sport, but it's a happy trade for seats that are superior in every other way :)

    When you say programme windows what do you mean? As far as programming the auto lock I'll try sort out a how to with pics over the next few days, it's pretty simple just need to refresh myself so I don't tell you wrong!

    I found that when I was trying to set the clock after I first bought the car. 2 years later and I'd completely forgotten that speed limit thing. Isn't there 2 speeds you can set (with a 1 or 2 in the bottom corner of the symbol)?
